History & Overview

Established in 2015, IAPM was founded with a vision to develop and manufacture high-quality industrial nano-particle ceramic-based specialty products. As a leader in toll manufacturing, product development, and research, we utilize advanced techniques such as rotary kilns, tunnel kilns, milling, spray coating, and spray drying to deliver superior products. Our extensive capabilities include toll manufacturing through various unit operations, in-house scale-up of products and processes from lab to pilot plant to production, and a skilled R&D team with technical laboratory support. This enables us to offer comprehensive development services to a wide array of industries, including ceramic material sciences, polymer manufacturing, minerals processing, pigment and dye manufacturing, and environmental roofing solutions.

Located in Van Buren, Arkansas, our state-of-the-art US facility is strategically positioned with onsite rail service and just two miles from Arkansas River port access.
